Dale is a good friend of Restore a Muscle Cars, and we have been working with him every step of the way in the frame off restoration of his SE TA, that he has had for a long time. Dale has been restoring this car since last years TA Nats and over the past month or so is really putting in the overtime! Dale gets married this weekend, so we are under a crunch to help him get his TA done! Last night 1 a.m. we finished 95% of the decaling...
Burt Reynolds Edition Trans Am BAN3 at the DYNO
We did a complete tune on (Signed by Burt - Car #9) this BRE Trans Am. The
performed by Chad & Pat @ THE SHOP, in Lincoln, NE on a MustangDyno). This car has an LS7
engine, with upgraded cam, lifters, springs and rods, to get it to 625hp at
the crank, with similar torque. Unbelievable car to drive and feel the
power that it has. If you ever get a chance to go for a ride in one of
these cars or to purchase one, they are well worth the money and
investment. Keep i mind this is a one of a kind signed car designed by
Year One and Burt himself, and there will be only a limited production!
Ladder Bar system & Test Drive [S3-Ep.5-1]
If you've been around cars and trucks very long, you know that vintage,
nostalgia, and rat rods are very popular. The question is, how do you make
a nostalgia-style car with leaf springs hook up like a modern drag car but
not lose the vintage look? Simple...you install a ladder bar system! But
how do you keep the leaf springs from binding you ask? Ah...there is a
special way to do it, and if you want to find out what it is...you need to
catch this episode of GearZ. Then it's out on the road to test it out as
Stacey shows you just how much fun you can have with a nostalgia-style
vehicle. Would somebody please bail him out of jail?!?!

77 Plantinum Bandit @ The Dyno!
Here is a quick upload of the Dyno session we did with the
Platinum Bandit just after the TA Nats this year.
The Platinum Bandit, is an original 77 SE 4spd TA, that we converted over
to a lot of modern technology to make it a fun road ready car with a lot of
power. The 474 stroked engine we recently built for it with the help of
Butler Performance, will be featured in the next issue of High Performance
Pontiac Magazine. Pushing 585HP off of 89 Ethanol fuel, with plenty of
vacuum and drive-ability, really makes this car come alive! I will be
posting a video of all the updated components and their manufacturers soon.

Mad Max - Last V8 Interceptor Axle-hop Stop!
Met up with Justice, who runs Maxrockatansky.org and did a little bit of
filming near Lake Lewisville. Thought I'd throw in the axle-hop stop that
you see at the beginning of MM2: The Road Warrior. He doesn't throw it into
reverse, as many erroneously believe. It's this type of stop I demonstrate
